Has anyone heard of this Canadian Monastery?

Postby Hoseth » Sun Nov 11, 2012 7:43 pm

Hello All,

I apologize if I am posting this on the wrong section. If so, I assume the moderator will move it to the proper section.

I have been looking for a Canadian Theravada monastery or organization to attend. I have looked around quite a bit, and I stumbled across the Hermitage Meditation Center in Quebec. Their website has little information. I have been in contact with them, and I am supposed to call them, however I was wondering if anyone has had any contact with this organization. If so, send me a PM or post here.

Your help and knowledge is greatly appreciated!

I don't know anything about them, but I've heard good things about the Montreal Buddhist Monasteryand True North Insight. If you are looking for places in Quebec to attend, you might want to check them out.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.

Where in Canada are you?

In BC there's the Sitavana monastery: http://birken.ca/

In Ontario there's at least three places you might go.

Thank you Lonesome Yogurt and Reductor.

Reductor, I have been in contact with those monasteries and unfortunately they are not taking people in for long-term residency.

Lonesome Yogurt, I will look into the Montreal Center. As for True North Insight, they do not offer long-term retreats.
